The Zephyr PWS-1000NS looks impressive it has the same specs as the davis except for the transmit distance (300 ft vs 1000 ft) but it is under $200 and that's with 2 displays and the mounting poll. :google:

On a map with other PWSs, you can usually pick out a Lacrosse wx station just by looking at the Temps; they're about 4-5F warmer than everyone else.

The Davis is by far the best choice but if like me you can not afford the Davis this is what I would consider looking for:

1. solar power (some cheaper systems you have to change batteries often)

2. accuracy what is the base measurement (EG. .01 in of rain vs .04 in)

3. software does it include it.

4. additional stuff to maket it work (poles etc.)

Thanks Guy's but I was too late asking. The Girlfriend bought the Lacrosse already. So I will download something to upload data to W/U and may look into APRS but we will see. :icon_hi:
